WAR IN AMBA: LA REPUBLIQUE IMPORTS FIREWOOD FROM FRANCE
It has been revealed that La Republique Du Cameroun now imports firewood which cost 4900 CFA from France, her colonial master. Worthy of note is that Cameroun like other French territories are huge producers of wood and other wood products. The only difference is that in the Cameroons, most of the exploitation takes place in the colonized part now called Ambazonia. Without knowing if this has been a recurrent practice, does it suffice to say this could be as a result of the damages incurred by timber dealers in the Southern zone of Southern Cameroons as a result of the ongoing war declared by Colonial President Paul Biya? or is it the normal outcome of dependency syndrome by Francophone African States on their mother France?
We have seen situations where the West most often than not refuses to ensure Africa leaves her dependency attitudes on them in the sense that raw materials which could be transformed to finish products are exported to these western countries who in turn produces the end product and Africa buys from them in a much higher rate? A situation which could have been avoided by making sure African states invest on building industralized institutions which produces these end products themselves. However, in the case of the Cameroons, the importation of hard wood for use for domestic issues is troubling.
Worthy of note is that the exploitation of timber from Konye, Manyu and other areas within Southern Cameroons has witnessed a decline due to the engagement of Ambazonia Restoration forces who have made it a duty to inflict an economic cost on La Republique Du Cameroun by stopping timber exploitation, an exploitation which has not benefitted that part of the country for many decades as roads, schools, hospitals are not even developed and worst still, royalties are paid to Douala instead of the regional councils. To these Restoration fighters, stopping timber flow or engaging in Economic sabotage strips off money and cash flow to La Republique Du Cameroun government which they use in financing the war. To them, this aspect helps to protect homeland, and forces the hands of the Government to enter into negotiations with the leadership of the Ambazonia revolution.
Imported Wood Cost 4900 CFA
This move has been a fatal blow to the terrorist government of La Republique occupiers who consider this part of Ambazonia as a main source of timber.
The imported wood was spotted at SPAR (a supermarket in Douala) earlier this week with a French designed sticked on it. BaretaNews wonders if France has enough forest to keep up with this new deal unless for the fact that African states have become a milk cow for them especially the Francophone African countries.
However, the economic sabotage must continue, very soon they will start importing palm oil and petrol if PAMOL & SONARA are targeted.
